Marc Pedraza Sarto (born 6 February 1987) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for CD Numancia as a midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Born in Barcelona, Catalonia, Pedraza was a product of local RCD Espanyol's youth ranks. He spent his first senior season with the B-team in Segunda División B, scoring ten goals but also being relegated. In the following year he upgraded to Segunda División and was loaned to Deportivo Alavés,[1] appearing sparingly as the Basques also dropped down a level.

Returning to his native region, Pedraza continued to be mainly associated with Espanyol's reserves. On 2 January 2010, he played his first and only La Liga match, coming on as a substitute for José Callejón in the last minute of a 0–1 away loss against Valencia CF.[2]

In the 2010 summer, Pedraza was released by Espanyol, but in October he signed with another club in his native region, third division's CE L'Hospitalet.[3] After three full seasons he returned to the second level, joining CD Numancia on a two-year contract.[4]

Personal life[edit]

Pedraza's father, Ángel, was also a footballer. A defender and midfielder, he played professionally for FC Barcelona and RCD Mallorca, going on to coach his son at Hospitalet in one match.[5]
